Diane's Flower Seeds are always fresh and the germination rate is great! The descriptions are great and the order is shipped in a timely manner. I highly recommend Diane's Flower Seeds, especially for flower seed!

By cocoajuno on Jan 22, 2017 7:52 AM, concerning Swallowtail Garden Seeds:

The seeds I have purchased from this company have always germinated and I would highly recommend this company for purchasing seeds. Great pictures and description of all plants. Shipping is fast and the cost is low.

By cocoajuno on Jan 22, 2017 7:26 AM, concerning Flowers by the Sea:

I am absolutely enamored with this company. I first ordered 6 cultivar and was amazed at the condition and the size of the plants, some were blooming and they were very large an healthy. I received such wonderful plants the first time that I ordered 7 more the following week. They arrived in much the same manner. This the best mail order experience I have ever had!!!

The website is set up perfectly, it is easy to browse for hours even to see the bloom from other zones. I am now looking for other spots to place more Salvia this spring.

I am anticipating bloom for the entire flowering season and cannot wait for the hummingbirds to hum all over my garden. I highly recommend this business!

Salvia "Flower Child" is my new favorite, I love the color and size is great for a fill in plant, this was blooming when I received it in October and continued to bloom.

By cocoajuno on Jan 22, 2017 6:57 AM, concerning Summer Winds Nursery:

I purchased ladybugs and praying mantis eggs from Summer Winds Nursery this year and I had the best luck with both. I got the SCARE of my gardening life when a very large praying mantis jumped (or whatever they do...) it ended up on my arm as I was trimming his/her home. Needless to say I jumped and screamed like a little girl, this coming from a person who is not afraid of a rattlesnake or any other desert creature because I grew up here...but once I regained my composure I picked up a stick and persuaded it to get on the stick so I could return got it home. I was surprised and delighted to find so many Praying Mantis in the garden this summer, I am hoping to see more this spring.

The knowledge of the staff regarding beneficial bugs, growing conditions and plants is great comfort to a gardener.

By cocoajuno on Jan 22, 2017 6:35 AM, concerning Jackrabbit Nursery:

If you are in the west valley this is the place to go for native plants. They have a large selection of desert and citrus trees, shrubs and cacti. The knowledge the staff has regarding the native plants, how to plant and nurture them is vast.

This is a family owned business that has helped me tremendously with the choice of landscape for my front yard. We have also purchased all our compost for this atrocious clay that we have encountered in this area. The number one reason to turn to this business is the vast knowledge of the area and how the soil differs so much even within a mile of your property, We have to be careful with plants in the area we live in because the deepest the water level ever ...even during the summer is 6 feet. A lot of desert plants will not survive in these conditions but with the guidance of their staff we have very nice landscape plants.

This is the tree we purchased from Jackrabbit Nursery, Palo Verde Sonoran Emerald, it is a beautiful anchor for our landscape. It has of course grown bigger but I have not taken a new picture.

By cocoajuno on Jan 22, 2017 6:09 AM, concerning Ladybug Daylilies:

My first experience with Ladybug Dayliles was while I was still in Washington state, I had no knowledge of how to grow and nourish a daylily, The knowledge I received from Dan and Leslie set me on a path to own as many as I could, I believe my last count was over 200 cultivar, When I left Washington to move to Arizona I took about 25 cultivar with me but due to a malfunction in my watering system while on vacation only 1 survived the desert heat.

Last year when I was ready to start over in the desert with daylilies I called Dan, I told him my situation and what we had built to shade the daylilies from the heat and again I received the help I needed to get started, Much to my surprise I had a bloom on one of them later in the spring, Dan was honest and told me that some of the cultivar I had expressed interest in would not do well in the desert, he also told me not to buy the new ones and to start slow and that it will be a good learning experiment for both of us. He told me it would help him with recommendations for our extreme growing area. I am looking forward to some other blooms this spring because the plants have settled in and grown very nicely, Shannon Ashley bloomed for me the first spring, I was elated!

By cocoajuno on Jan 22, 2017 5:37 AM, concerning Dancing Daylily Garden:

I purchased several daylily from Becky in the fall of 2016, The plants are flourishing and I expect I will have bloom on most of them this year. For me just having the beauty of happy healthy green is a plus here in the desert, bloom will be an added bonus,

By cocoajuno on Jan 22, 2017 5:32 AM, concerning Easy to Grow Bulbs:

I have ordered Amaryllis from this company and the bloom the first year was wonderful. I also ordered a few fill ins that have done very well too! I would highly recommend this company for your bulbs, Tinkerbell, Love Triangle and Lime Flare ...first year bloom!

By zuzu on Jan 22, 2017 12:03 AM, concerning A Reverence For Roses Inc:

Now that many of the own-root rose nurseries are jacking their prices up to unaffordable heights, it's a pleasure to find a new nursery offering low prices, low shipping rates, superb packaging, and speedy delivery. A Reverence for Roses carries an impressive variety of old garden roses and modern roses. The prices are already low, but the nursery also holds periodic sales and occasionally offers other incentives, such as 25% off any order of four roses.

I placed two orders for a total of eight roses six months ago. They were band roses, but they were larger than most of the gallon-sized roses I've received from other own-root rose nurseries. They grew so well in containers in those six months that I planted them in the garden this month with no fear that they'd be lost in the existing landscape.

Here's a photo of the first order of four roses the day it arrived.

By Deebie on Jan 21, 2017 8:27 PM, concerning A Field Guide to the Wildflowers of North America:

If you ever need to find information on Identifying a native plant or wildflower, this is the ideal guide. It's compact enough to carry with you on an expedition. It tells you everything you need to know about where these plants are located and concise details about their habitat and their growing needs and conditions. It is the ultimate source for written info relating to wildflowers, with illustrations.

By Deebie on Jan 21, 2017 8:19 PM, concerning Caladium Bulbs 4 Less:

When I received my order of Tuberose bulbs, I was surprised to find way more than the number of clumps that I'd ordered. Bill is so generous with his goods and he takes extra care to ship and sell his products at the best rates that he can, especially for NGA members. I highly recommend ordering from Caladium Bulbs 4 Less. You will not be disappointed. I look forward to ordering from him every year.
